A Greeneville woman who fled from police was found to be in possession of drugs and counterfeit money on Wednesday.

A Greeneville Police officer saw a vehicle on East Bernard Avenue around 5:00 PM and could not see a tag on the vehicle. The officer stopped at a parking lot on West Bernard to wait for the vehicle to pass.

The vehicle pulled into the Dollar General. A fake temporary tag was in the back window of the vehicle, and the vehicle came back as not on file.

A female came out of the store, and when she saw an officer, she allegedly took off running toward the trailer park. Officers chased the female, 33-year-old Tiffany Collins of Kitchen Branch Road. She was taken to the ground.

A records check showed that Collins had an active violation of probation. She reportedly said that she ran because she did not want to talk to officers. She also admitted that she was the driver of the vehicle, according to the police report.

A search revealed eleven grams of methamphetamine and multiple pills. A fake $20 bill was found in her bag.

Collins was charged with possession of meth with intent to sale or deliver, two counts of possession of schedule two drugs, possession of schedule four drugs, driving on a revoked license second offense, violation of financial responsibility law, altered registration, and resisting stop, frisk, halt.
